    Fifty-six young children from the Hendricks County area will be taking part in the production of The Jungle Book Jr. The show is being produced by The Biz Academy of Musical Theatre, whose mission is to provide theatrical training for young performers of all abilities and give them a platform to explore, expand, & share their talents while increasing their appreciation for Theatre Arts. The Biz’s goal is also to raise the community’s awareness of Theatre Arts in Hendricks County and its surrounding areas.

    Disney’s The Jungle Book is a beloved story of a young boy who grew up in the forest and adopted by most of the animals as part of their family, but to protect the boy from Shere Khan, the tiger, they must get him to go to the man village. The production is full of jungle life with lots of animals and the memorable characters we all know and love.

    The list of lead characters and the actors is below:

    Mowgli – Jadyn Kelly
    Bagheera – Oliva Houston
    Baloo – Jack Copeland
    King Louie – Bailey Harmon
    Shere Khan – Lindsey Schaecher
    Kaa and Coils – Aria Martin, Juliette Collins, Molly Wolfe, Teagan O’Meara, Mia Stien, Megan Copeland
    Colonel Hathi – Julia Murphy
    Baby Elephant – Keith Sturgeon
    Shanti/Coconut Tree – Delaney David
    Old Monkey – Kyle Griffin
    Vultures – Rachel Petersson, Katie Kobold, Payton Hartman

    The production will have a total of 6 shows during two week-ends. The dates and times are as follows:

    • Friday, June 7 at 7pm
    • Saturday, June 8 at 7pm
    • Sunday, June 9 at 3pm
    • Friday, June 14 at 7pm
    • Saturday, June 15 at 7pm

    All shows will be at Avon Christian Church, located at 7236 East County 100 S., Avon, Indiana.

    Along with opportunities for local children to be in live productions, the Biz also offers a variety of classes, lessons, as well as summer camps. Since opening their business in August of 2012, The Biz has had two other performances – Beauty and the Beast Jr. and Thoroughly Modern Millie Jr., as well as being asked to participate in the Indy 500 Memorial Day Parade.

    Tickets for The Jungle Book are $10 for everyone age 5 and up and will be sold at the door or through a cast member.  All tickets are general admission, but due to limited space, it is highly encouraged to buy tickets ahead of time.
